Ryan Famuliner

News Director

Ryan Famuliner joined KBIA in February 2011. It’s his second stint at KBIA. His first was from 2005-2007, as a student studying broadcast journalism at the University in Missouri. In his spell outside KBIA, Ryan worked as a general assignment reporter and videographer at WNDU-TV in South Bend, Ind. and as a reporter and anchor at the Missourinet radio network in Jefferson City, MO. He’s won national Sigma Delta Chi and Edward R. Murrow Awards for his reporting and editing work.

Ryan and his wife, Kelly, hail from the Kansas City and St. Louis areas, respectively, finding Columbia is a fantastic place to compromise. They spend an unhealthy amount of time at flea markets and junk shops, and watching Mizzou sports and Major League Baseball. They’re about a halfway through their MLB ballpark tour.
